Aer Lingus to Move into JetBlue’s New York JFK Terminal 5 on 3rd April

JetBlue Airways and Aer Lingus have announced a codeshare agreement that expands on the partnership that has linked the two carriers’ networks at New York John F. Kennedy International Airport and Boston’s Logan International Airport since 2008.

The start of the new codeshare arrangement coincides with the move of Aer Lingus’s New York flight operations from Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport into JetBlue’s Terminal 5. Aer Lingus customers connecting to one of JetBlue’s many destinations across the USA will benefit from same terminal connections, one-stop ticketing and baggage check-in for travel on both airlines, from the USA to Europe.

With the move to Terminal 5, scheduled for 3rd April 2013, the minimum connection time from European arrivals to US departures will be reduced to just about 60 minutes. Customers travelling to Ireland will have connections as fast as 40 minutes.

Stephen Kavanagh, Chief Commercial Officer at Aer Lingus, added: “We are delighted to expand our relationship with JetBlue, as we enter into our fifth year of partnership. Aer Lingus and JetBlue share the same customer focused ethos and passion for innovation and best-in-class service. We have had fantastic feedback from customers to the high level of convenience and choice of destinations. With the new codeshare agreement coupled with increased frequencies on our US routes, we look forward to providing customers with more choice and a seamless travel experience.”
